It's best to thaw seafood overnight in the refrigerator. Place the wrapped seafood package on a plate or shallow pan to catch any liquid that drips out. Allow 8-10 hours (extremely large cuts may take a bit longer). Do not try to speed up the process of thawing seafood. Never allow seafood to thaw at room temperature or place it in warm water to thaw. You will lost flavor and texture.
